Report as to Progress of Negotiations for Public

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication, which was, together with 
the documents transmitted therewith, ordered pub- 
lished and placed on file: 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

February 9, 1944. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Pursuant to the plan which I sub- 
mitted to you on October 13, 1943, concerning public 
ownership of Chicago's transit lines, which matter 
you referred to the Committee on Local Transpor- 
tation, there is transmitted herewith certain docu- 
ments which indicate the progress made to date m 
this mS/ttGi" 

These documents consist of a report dated Janu- 
ary 27, 1944 by Philip Harrington, Commissioner 
of Subways and Superhighways, to the negotiating 
subcommittee of the City Council and a letter dated 
January 28, 1944 addressed by me under authority 
of the negotiating subcommittee to William P. Sid- 
ley, Chairman, and members of the negotiating 
committee appointed by the Federal Court. _ 

These documents are entirely tentative and in 
no way binding on the City Council until it acts. 
They are merely suggestions for expediting prog- 
ress in this all important problem. They are pre- 
sented to you for your information and guidance. 



(Signed) 



Yours truly, 

Edward J. 



Kelly, 
Mayor. 



The following are the documents attached to the 
foregoing communication: 

[Copy] 

January 28, 1944. 

Mr. William P. Sidley, Chairman and the Members 
of the Committee appointed by the United. States 
District Court 

Gentlemen— Pursuant to our mutual understand- 
ing at the last joint meeting held in my office on 
December 7, 1943, at which it was agreed that the 
matter of proposed City acquisition of the prop- 



1356 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO

erties of the Chicago Surface Lines and of the Chi- 
cago Rapid Transit Company would be expedited 
if the negotiators for the City would suggest two 
lump sum purchase prices, the subcommittee com- 
prising the City's negotiators has authorized me to 
suggest the following : 

For all properties and other assets of the Chicago 
Surface Lines as defined in the Mayor's statement 
of October 13, 1943, the lump sum cash price of 
$75,000,000 plus the right of the owners of the 
Chicago Surface Lines to retain all cash in excess 
of $27,500,000 estimated at approximately $8,000,- 
000 or a total of $83,000,000. 

For all properties of the Chicago Rapid Transit 
System as defined in the Mayor's statement of 
October 13, 1943 (except certain non-transportation 
property carried on the Company's books at 
$3,600,000) the lump cash price of $11,000,000. 

In presenting to you these suggested purchase 
figures, every effort has been made to evaluate as 
liberally as possible the current values of the 
existing securities and potential earning power of 
the properties under the best possible conditions of 
unification and modernization, and at the same time 
maintain the financial integrity of the proposed 
public transit system. We have as firm assurance 
as it would be possible to obtain at this stage of 
these negotiations from a very strong group of 
investment bankers that they will bid on and pur- 
chase City revenue certificates bearing a low rate 
of interest at par or better and in sufficient amount 
to enable the City to consummate this cash pur- 
chase at the prices named. 

This committee was appointed for the purpose of 
negotiating with your committee, and if these sug- 
gested prices which this committee believes reason- 
able, are acceptable to you, we will submit them 
to the City Council for action, and formal offer 
if approved by them. ' 

It should be understood, also, that this sugges- 
tion does not infer a waiver of any existing claims 
of the City against either or any of said companies 
their Receivers and Trustees, nor does it contem- 
plate the assumption by the City of any liens or 
claims outstanding or arising out of operations of 
the Companies at or prior to the time of delivery. 
Yours truly, 

(S) Edward J. Kelly 

Mayor and 
Chairman of the Subcommittee 
on Price Negotiation

January 27, 1944. 
To the Mayor and Members of the Traction Sub- 
committee of the City Council, City of Chicago. 
Gentlemen— Herewith is presented a brief sum- 
mary of the attached report of this same date, in 
which IS submitted the cash amounts which your 



staff recommends be suggested by your committee 
to the owners of the Chicago Surface Lines and 
Chicago Rapid Transit Company for City purchase 
of their properties. 
Chicago Surface Lines 
For the acquisition of all 
Surface Lines proper- 
ties and assets as 
enumerated in Mayor 
Kelly's printed state- 
ment of October 13, 
1943 including $27,- 
500,000 in cash, the 
City to pay in cash to 
the owners of the 
Chicago Surface Lines.$75,000,000 
The owners of the Sur- 
face Lines to retain 
all cash in excess of 
$27,500,000 estimated 
at 8,000,000 



Total cash available for 
distribution to Surface 
Lines owners 

For the acquisition of all 
Rapid Transit proper- 
ties and assets as enu- 
merated in Mayor Kel- 
ly's printed statement 
of October 13, 1943, 
the City to pay in cash 
to the owners of the 
Chicago Rapid Transit 
Company 



$83,000,000 



$11,000,000 

It is our opinion that these amounts are reason- 
able and represent the present fair value to the 
owners of these properties and that they are the 
approximate maximum upon which fixed interest 
and principal retirement charges can be supported 
by the proposed new publicly-owned transit system. 
These opinions of value are further qualified by the 
assumption that the agreed modernization program 
will be undertaken and vigorously prosecuted as 
soon as war conditions permit. This is essential if 
satisfactory service is to be provided and the finan- 
cial integrity of the enterprise preserved. 

These amounts not only make feasible the pro- 
posd City transit operation, but they are also fair 
to the owners both from an earnings and physical 
value point of view. Furthermore, while the Court 
and not the City must determine the final distribu- 
tion of this cash, it is not amiss to point out the 
fairness of the figures from a securities point of 
view. 

First mortgage bonds of the Chicago Surface 
Lines which sold during the last five years prior 
to October 13, 1943 between 38 and 62 can be paid 
off at 95 or $69,082,433. This would leave approxi- 
mately $14,000,000 cash to distribute to Surface 
Lines junior security holders and $11,000,000 cash 
for Rapid Transit Company bondholders. If divided 
in the same percentage as the 1942 reorganization 
plan the division would be :

of $4,897,000 but this reflects only eight months 
ot the June 1942 wage increase and nine months 
ot 8 cent fare. Deducting $800,000 by properly 
chargmg purchased power to operating expenses, 
A net for 1942 was approximately $4,100,000 
Another wage mcrease made effective June 1 1943 
which Mr. Grossman advised the Federal Court 
might increase the Company's annual expense as 
much as $1,900,000, more than wipes out all excess 
over first mortgage bond interest. 

For 1943, based on eight months' operation end- 
ing September 30, 1943, it appears that net income 
after operating expenses, power, taxes, and wage 
increase effective June 1, 1943. may reach $5,000,- 
V^nW^^ after deducting interest and income tax 
(40% of remainder), there will probably remain 
a net of about $1,000,000. This small excess in this 
very exceptional year, probably could not be paid to 
the junior security holders while past due first 
mortgages are unpaid and while the property is in 
urgent need of rehabilitation. In fact, were the 
Chicago Surface Lines to reorganize separately, 
obtain a City franchise, and spend $30,000,000 in 
partially modernizing their own system, they could 
not hold under competitive conditions the high 
volume of business they are now enjoying because 
of war industry and rationing conditions. 

°P/i"^istic estimate of results of operation of 
the Surface Lines, reorganized separately as pro- 
posed, indicates that after spending $30,000 000 
cash on improvements, about half that actually 
required, there would be available for interest and 
sinking fund on the first mortgage bonds, $4,165 000 
at present cost levels. Applying interest ($3,636,- 
UUU) and sinking fund requirements ($1,100 000) 
to this net, there would be left a deficit of $571,000. 

Even if the city were to purchase the Rapid 
Transit System and lease it to the Surface Lines 
at nominal rental, the earnings would not be im- 
proved materially. The only method by which these 
properties can be put on an earning basis, is by 
modernization, and under any lease arrangement 
It IS not conceivable that the Surface Lines owners' 
even if they were able, would put into the Rapid 
Iransit property, the substantial sums required 
The Chicago Rapid Transit Company has failed to 
earn interest requirements on its first mortgage 
bonds for many years. In fact, this company has 
T J^^^^ operating deficits during those years. 
In 1942 an operating net of $43,000 was reported 
atter taxes, but if adequate provision for depre- 
ciation had been made, a loss in that exceptionally 
good year also would have resulted. 
-.nFo^ twelve months ending November 30, 

1943, which may prove to be the peak period of 
war-time traffic and for many years thereafter, a 
net operating income of $911,377 is reported, but 
atter making proper allowance for wage increases 
now pending and for adequate depreciation the 
balance available for interest dwindles to $12 000 
While the subway has brought the company in- 
creased trafiic, it also imposes on it, added expense 
tor operation, additional stations, and for mainte- 
nance. Hence, operating as a separate, competitive 
system, there appears to be no hope that the Rapid 
iransit system can be expected to have any earn- 
ings or credit, either from interest on bonds or for 
much needed improvements. 

(b) The future prospects and values of each of 
the two properties operating separately. 

As hereinabove pointed out (a), the Surface 
Lines owners can look forward to earnings of 
not more than $4,000,000 a year, before interest 
and probably less. To hold this, they most cer- 
tainly face the necessity of expending all available 
cash (at least $30,000,000) on improvements as 



February 9, 1944 



soon as obtainable. With such a slight margin over 
nrst mortgage interest requirements ($3,635,918) 
the value to the present owners of the Surface 
Amines, in their existing status and operating situa- 
tion cannot be estimated at more than the face 
value of those bonds, viz : $72,718,350. 

Likewise, as indicated above under paragraph 
(a) the Chicago Rapid Transit Company, operating 
competitively, can expect to have no net earnings 
or credit either for interest on bonds or for much 
needed improvements. In fact, its very existence 
as an oprating property would appear to be de- 
pendent upon removal of competition and the es- 
tablishment of credit for urgently needed rehabili- 
tation. With no indication of any sustained earn- 
ings for interest or even for continued operation 
as a separate property, the value to the present 
owners of the Rapid Transit system, in its existing 
status and operating situation, can be no more than 
that amount which could be salvaged if they were 
permitted to discontinue operation and liquidate 
the property. 

(c) Improvement in values and status, if the 
two properties were unified and operated 
under the 1941 ordinance and the 1942 Plan 
of Reorganization. 
Unification under the 1941 ordinance would es- 
tal^hsh the legal status of the two properties, it 
would eliminate competitive and wasteful operation, 
and would produce substantial economies in the 
overall expense. As part of a unified system, even 
the modernized rapid transit lines would establish 
some earning value of their own, and would con- 
tribute to over-all earnings of the system by carry- 
ing most economically, a larger share of the un- 
profitable long-haul riding. 

An estimate of earnings reasonably predictable 
tor such a unified, privately-owned and operated 
system, has been prepared on what is believed to 
^^^^J^^L^^orecast of revenues which can be antici- 
F -fo^^ m ^stiKiate covers the period from 1944

985 mil ion in 1944, to a low of 888 million in 1950 
rising thereafter due to modernization and popula- 
tion growth, to 977 million in 1954. Wages mate- 
rials, taxes and fares, are assumed at present levels. 
}of u P^^"' which reduces fixed charges to 
4% on bonds, has been assumed. It is believed that 
this estimate sets forth the best possible picture of 
prospective values and earnings under private uni- 
fied ownership. It produces the following results • 
Net earnings of unified system after taxes, de- 
preciation, interest and loan retirements-

1949— 907,000 

$li85'000^ ^^^'^ (1944-1954)— 

This indicates that the first mortgage and income 
bonds would be reasonably secure as to interest 
and principal requirements under the 1942 plan of 
reorganization, with R.F.C. cooperation. The half 
that would be paid in cash under the R.F.C plan 
would undoubtedly be worth par, while the income 
bonds would be worth somewhat less. 

It also indicates an annual average of $1,385,000 
applicable to preferred and common stock equities 
although not payable to them during the modern- 
ization period. While considerable new property 
will be added to the system in ten years' time, de- 
preciation is also taking its toll, the cash position 
of the company is being reduced, and debt will be 
increased by outstanding equipment trust notes re-

quired to complete the modernization program, so 
that enhancement of junior equities will be tem- 
pered by these deductions. 

It is estimated that at the end of ten years, the 
value of the property additions less depreciation, 
reduction in cash, and increase in debt, will leave 
a net accrual in property value of $13,000,000. The 
present worth at 5% of $13,000,000 due ten years 
hence is about $8,000,000. This would seem to be 
the increase in equity of preferred and common 
stock It has been pointed out that the present 
real equity of all securities to be exchanged for 
preferred and common stock is small. Earnings on 
the Surface Lines are barely sufficient to service 
the first mortgage bonds, while nothing is available 
for Rapid Transit interest. 

What is the best thing for the City to do under 

these circumstances ? 
Chicago is faced with the immediate problem of 
developing a sound, workable plan for assuring the 
rehabilitation and modernization of its local transit 
facilities. The present systems are equipped in most 
part with obsolete and worn-out equipment, operat- 
ing under impossible conditions of competition, 
struggling to earn enough to meet as best they can 
outstanding and past due debts. Fares are already 
higher than other large cities. Population growth 
is undoubtedly suffering from lack of adequate 
transportation, and industry is more and more 
selecting locations outside the city or moving else- 

As hereinbefore pointed out, there is no real hope 
for a satisfactory improvement in this deplorable 
condition under any plan for private ownership and 
operation now apparent. The best private owner- 
ship plan appears to be unification under the 1941 
ordinance and 1942 plan of reorg^^f ^^1°"; 
even this program has lost much of its attractive- 
ness by reason of changes in wage and tax condi- 
tions in the past three years. 

Under existing conditions and surrounding cir- 
cumstances, the program which appears to offer to 
the City's general interests hope of getting a mod- 
ernized, attractive local transit system lies in ac- 
quisition and operation by the City of all its transit 
■ facilities. Lower interest rates, freedom from com- 
petition and certain tax burdens, economies which 
can be effected with unification, and fares deter- 
mined on the basis of operation at cost, are some 
of the maior considerations which dictate this con- 
dusion.' In fact, it is Vredicted th^t every major 
city in the country will eventually be forced to this 
same step, if urban transit is to be maintained at 
modern standards under these changed conditions 
and if it is to compete successfully with the private 
aStomobile. This is not an argument for mumcipa^ 
ownership or principle, it is a reahstic recognition 
of the necessities in this particu ar pubhc service 
field. If a need for adequate public service cannot 
be met by a private public utihty, then it auto- 
matically becomes a necessary governmental func- 

What is the best thing for the owners of the 

Surface Lines properties to do ? 
Plan No. 1 — Reorganize and continue to operate 

If they do this, the Surface Lines must put all 
available cash ($30,000,000) into improvements and 
this is only about one-half what the property re- 
quires. Even assuming that they could get a fran- 
chise on this basis, the most optimistic estmiate 
(at present rates of fare and wage and tax levels) 
indicate predictable traffic and earnings of no more 
than $4,000,000 annually, not quite enough to pay 
interest and sinking fund on outstanding first mort- 
gage bonds only. And this is after giving weight 



to increases in traffic and economies in operating 
costs that will be derived from $30,000,000 modern- 
ization. Hence, under this plan, the value to the 
owners of the Surface Lines can be approximated 
at less than $73,000,000. 

Plan No. 2 — Reorganize separately and lease 
Rapid Transit properties for unified operation ? 

Even if the Surface Lines obtained the use of 
the Rapid Transit properties at a nominal rental, 
they would be no better income-wise than they 
would be under the 1942 Unification Plan, but they 
would be faced with the requirement of spending 
$45 000,000 for improvements on a property they 
do not own in order to realize those earnings. 
Hence the value to the owners of the Surface Lines 
under this plan cannot exceed $73,000,000. 

Plan No. 3 — Reorganize under the 1942 plan of 
Reorganization ? 

Estimates brought down to date to reflect present 
wage, materials and tax levels, indicate, on a fairly 
optimistic forecast of revenues, that such a unified 
operation under the terms of the 1941 ordinance 
can be expected to produce net earnings available 
for modernization, after interest and sinking fund 
and first mortgage bonds and interest on equipment 
loans, averaging approximately $1,275,000 per an- 
num for the next ten years. All cash plus this and 
more earnings will be required to complete the 
agreed modernization program, hence it is obvious 
that under this plan there would be nothing lett 
after servicing the first mortgage and income bonds. 
Therefore the value of those bonds and the equity 
of the juniors represents the value to the owners 
under this plan. 

The Surface Lines first mortgage bonds are to be 
refunded 50% cash and 50% in 4% income bonds. 
Pricing the income bonds at 90 and the cash at par 
produces a value for the present first mortgage 
bonds of 95, or $69,082,425. The value f the en- 
hanced equity of the junior securities of the Sur- 
face Lines is estimated at 2/3 of $13,000 000 or 
$8 666,667. This produces a total value ot tne sur- 
face Lines to their owners under the 1942 Plan ot 
Reorganization of $77,749,092, with all cash re- 
serves expended on the modernization program. 

Plan No. 4— Sell the properties to the City for 
C9,sh. 

Estimates made by the City's technical staff in- 
dicate that, as part of a unified publicly-owned 
transit system freed of competitive operation and 
certain tax burdens, the City could Justify payment 
to the owners of the Surface Lines, $75,000,000 m 
cash to which would be added approximately 
$8 000,000 excess cash in the companies' treasuries 
or' a total of $83,000,000 in cash which would be 
available for distribution. This is $5,000,000 more 
than the value to the owners under any ot the 
previous alternative plans. 

While this price is about $10,000,000 less than 
present depreciated physical value as verified by 
Mr Knox, plus the cash, it cannot be hoped to ob- 
tain dollar for dollar for physical equipment at sale 
and it does olfer more to the junior security holders 
than they can anticipate under any other plan. 
Assuming payment to first mortgage bondholders 
under the R. F. C. plan (50% in casb-$36 35|175 
and 50% in 4% income bonds or $36,359,175 (a) 9U 
= $32,723,258) of $69,082,433, there would be left 
for distribution to juniors approximately $14,UUU,- 
000 which is a liberal appraisal of their present 
value and their equity in future earnings.

As the result of their study, it is understood that 
they have advised their clients that the price to be

pany included) should not exceed an amount that 
can be supported by maximum annual fixed charges 
of $6,200,000 after necessary expenditures for mod-

owners of these properties, and that they are the 
approximate maximum upon which fixed mterest 
and principal retirement charges can be supported 
by the proposed new publicly-owned transit system. 
These opinions of value are further qualified by 
the assumption that the agreed modernization pro- 
gram will be undertaken and vigorously prosecuted

Proposed Repeal of Ordinance and Revocation of 
Rights and Privileges Granted Thereby to 
Potter Electric Signal and Mfg. Co. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, submitted the 
following communication, which was, together with 
the proposed ordinance submitted therewith, referred 
to the Committee on Utilities: 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

February 9, 1944. 
To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago : 

Gentlemen — On November 9, 1938 the City 
Council passed an ordinance authorizing Potter 



Electric Signal and Manufacturing Company to 
maintain and operate a line of wires for the trans- 
mission of signals by electricity for the purposes of 
transacting and carrying on a burglar alarm, fire 
alarm, sprinkler alarm and watch service business. 
The ordinance provided that the company should 
pay to the city as compensation for the privileges 
conferred six per cent of its gross receipts derived 
from the transaction of its business. Although the 
ordinance was accepted by the grantee it has failed 
and neglected to install the necessary equipment 
for the conduct of the business authorized and the 
city has lost the possible revenue which could be 
derived from such source and which before the 
passage of that ordinance brought into the city 
treasury more than $60,000 per annum from opera- 
tions of the American District Telegraph Company, 
Illinois District Telegraph Company, and Chicago 
Electric Protective Company under ordinances that 
expired on June 29, 1937. 

The Corporation Counsel has advised me that the 
City Council has power to terminate the ordinance 
passed November 9, 1938 for non-user of the rights 
and privileges granted to Potter Electric Signal and 
Manufacturing Company by that ordinance.' 

I submit herewith for your consideration draft of 
an ordinance prepared by the Corporation Counsel 
revoking and repealing the ordinance authorizing 
Potter Electric Signal and Manufacturing Company 
to maintain and operate a line of wires for the 
transmission of signals by electricity for the pur- 
poses of transacting and carrying on a burglar 
alarm, fire alarm, sprinkler alarm and watch serv- 
ice business.

Designation of "Show-Your-War-Bond-Shield Day 
in Chicago". 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

Proclamation 
Whereas, having reached a critical period in the 
Fourth War Loan Drive, we are still far from our 
goal; and 

Whereas, some 40,000 patriotic Chicagoans are 
engaged in making a house-to-house canvass to 
solicit personally every loyal citizen to back the 
attack for our fighting heroes by purchasing extra 
war bonds for the Fourth War Loan Drive ; and 

Whereas, the United States Treasury Department 
has provided a war bond shield to be given to all 
purchasers of bonds of any denomination to be 
placed in the windows of their homes or place of 
business to signify that such purchases have been 
made; and 

Whereas, this shield serves as a good example 
to follow for those who have not yet purchased 
extra bonds and as an emblem of the patriotism of 
those who have done so ; and 

Whereas, the use of this shield will save unneces- 
sary steps for the thousands of patriotic bond sell- 
ers who are volunteering their time and effort to 
solicit those who have not yet purchased. 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of the 
City of Chicago, do hereby designate Wednesday, 
February 9, 1944, as Show Your War Bond Shield 
Day in Chicago, and in so doing I urge all extra 
bond purchasers on that day to display this shield 
in the windows of their homes, in all office build- 
ings, public buildings, stores, shops, schools and 
industrial plants within the hmits of the City of 
Chicago, as proof that they are backing the attack. 

Dated this fifth day of February, A. D., 1944.

to be paid to the City of Chicago for the installa- 
tion of a drinking fountain for horses. With that 
letter is form of receipt to be executed by the proper 
city authorities, upon delivery of which the executor 
of the estate is prepared to pay to the city the 
amount of the legacy. 

We have written for and received a copy of the 
last will and testament of Florine C. Mix and find 
that the provision for the legacy referred to reads 
as follows: 

"Article XIX. I give and bequeath to the City 
of Chicago the sum of Five Hundred Dollars 
($500.00) to be used for the installation of a 
drinking fountain for horses, in such a location 
as in its judgment will best serve the purpose, 
and the fountain to bear an inscription to my 
memory." 

If it is the desire of the City Council to accept 
the legacy as conditioned, it will be necessary for 
the Council to pass an ordinance authorizing the 
City Comptroller to execute the form of receipt sub- 
mitted by Messrs. Osborne, Kline & McGurren. We 
transmit herewith form of ordinance for that pur-

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES

population studies made subsequent to this report 
indicate that it may be necessary to revise upward 
the population forecast presented in the study. Of 
the total number of dwelling units called for in 
the report, existing structures that would remain 
account for 635,000. Demolition of the Blighted 
and Near-Bhghted areas and of the oldest struc- 
tures in other parts of the city would result m 
the elimination of 350,000 units, all of which should 
be replaced by new units, in addition to 115,000 
new dewelling units that will be required by 1965 
to eliminate present over-crowded conditions and 
to house the increased population of the city. 
Thus within the next generation, the estimated 
new building demand totals 465,000 dwelling units, 
or roughly 20,000 per year. 

The Plan Commission is now at work on a com- 
prehensive analysis of the "economics of housing 
which will deal with the people of Chicago and 
their earnings as related to the purchase and 
rental of homes. 

There is also under way a very extensive study 
of industrial and commercial land use as related 
to the location of residential areas. 

These additional steps in the housing and land 
use program will be transmitted to the City Coun- 
cil as complementary to this presently completed 
study on Residential Land Use. It is believed that 
this will nrovide the Council with the general 
frame-work within which it can make provision 



for encouraging the construction of new homes 
and the rehabilitation of existing neighborhoods 
so that Chicago will become a better place in 
which to live. 

The Plan Commission will appreciate receiving 
your constructive suggestions on this very impor- 
tant part of the planning program. 

Very truly yours, 

(Signed) A. H. Mellinger, 

Chairman.

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

February 3, 1944. 

To the Honorable^ the Chairman and Members of 
the Finance Committee of the City Council of 
the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Your Honorable Body was advised 
in my communication of November 24, 1943 (see 
Journal Council Proceedings of December 1, 1943, 
Page 916), that the site occupied by Fire Engine 
Company No. 1, at 212-218 W. Lomax Place, is 
within the route of West (Congress Street) Super- 
highway and Route No. 2 of the Initial System of 
Subways; that it is necessary for the City to re- 
locate the fire station as it would be necessary 
to demolish or move the present building to another 
location. In that communication you were also 
advised that the appraisers for the City of Chicago 
and William G. Booth, land appraiser for the 
P. W. A. and United States Government, and con- 
sulting structural engineer for the City, had ap- 
praised the land and building at $85,328.00; that 
since the property was required for both Subway 
and Superhighway purposes the allocation of the 
value had tentatively been agreed upon by th^ 
appraisers and engineers for the City and P. W. A. 
as follows : 

Superhighway Account (M.F.T, Fund). .$55,639.75 

Subway Construction Account 29,688.25 

that of this latter sum, $23,950.00 being the esti- 
mated cost of the support of the building, came 
under the terms of the Grant Agreement. It was 
recommended that since the Fire Engine House 
tract was one of the few tracts yet unacquired for 
the Subway and Superhighway improvement and 
inasmuch as it would require several months to 
obtain a new site and build a new fire station, that 
the Committee take some action in the premises. 
This communication was submitted to the Council 
by your Committee and ordered deferred and pub- 
lished. 

On the 15th day of December, 1943 (Journal 
Council Proceedings of same date. Pages 1005-06) 
the following order was passed : 

Ordered, That the recommendation of the Com- 
missioner of Subways and Superhighways for the 
acquisition of City property located at Nos. 212-218

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

January 14, 1944. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen— This is to certify that all work 
on Contract T-1 of the State Street Subway has 
been satisfactorily completed by the Kil-Bar Elec- 
tric Company, contractor. This contract includes 
the duct benches, walkways, and handrails within 
the subway, and was approved by the City Council 
on September 4, 1941 (See C. J., p. 5527). The 
final inspection of the work was attended by 
Messrs. Blair and Buck, representing the Chicago 
Rapid Transit Company, Messrs. DeLeuw, Gunlock 
and McGregor, representing the City, and Mr. Mil- 
ler, representing the contractor. 

As all work under this contract was within the 
subway or subway structures, no releases are re- 
quired from other City departments. The final 
value of the contract, as determined by this depart- 
ment, amounts to $266,531.50, or $17,653.50 less 
than the original estimate. We have paid a total 
of $261,296.78 to the contractor, leaving a balance 
unpaid of $5,234.72. 

It is recommended, therefore, inasmuch as all 
work is satisfactorily completed, that you recom- 
mend to the City Council that it approve the final 
contract value of $266,531.50, and authorize the 
Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways to 
pay to the Kil-Bar Electric Company, contractor, 
the final payment on Contract T-1 of the State 
Street Subway. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Philip Harrington, 

Commissioner of Subways 
and Superhighways.

The following is the communication attached to 
the proposed order recommended in the foregoing 
committee report: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

February 3, 1944, 

To the Honorable, the Chairmun and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Re: West Route of the Comprehensive Super- 
highway System. 

Gentlemen — On- December 4, 1942 I sent you a 
communication with reference to Parcel No. 11 in 
the case of City of Chicago v. Walter Charles 
Atwell, et al., Circuit Court No. 41-C-1270, prop- 
erty known as 501-09 S. Plymouth Court, and in 
that letter stated that pursuant to data furnished 
me by the appraisers for the City and the P.W.A, 
the property was assessed in the 1939 Qaudrennial 
at $93,721.00. 

I have since been advised by the same appraisers 
that in 1940 the property owner, without the knowl- 
edge of the City, filed a complaint with the Board 
of Tax Appeals and secured a reduction in the 
value of the building, reducing the assessed value 
of the entire property, land and building, to $78,- 
791.00. They now advise me that the County As- 
sessor has just completed a re-assessment of this 
property for the 1943 Quadrennial and has fixed 
its value for tax purposes at $89,520.00. They 
again state that their value of $86,250.00 is fair 
and reasonable. 

Since I am obliged to rely upon the figures of 
these appraisers, I again recommend that the City 
accept the proposition of the owners to settle for 
$86,250.00, with the provision that the south one 
foot of the parcel be dismissed out of the suit as 
set forth in my letter of December 4, 1942. 

Yours very truly,

following provision that the part of said parcel on 
which the south wall stands of the building to be 
taken, be dismissed out of the proceeding since said

in a commercial district, the establishment and 
operation of a machine shop in an existing one- 
story brick building, formerly occupied as a brass 
foundry, on premises at 1364-66 W. Randolph 
Street; and 

Whereas, the decision of the Commissioner of 
Buildings rendered November 4, 1943 reads: 

'Application not approved. Proposed im- 
provement does not conform with requirements

letter of the zoning ordinance ; and 

Whereas, a public hearing was held on this

lar meeting held on December 6, 1943, after due

nal of Commerce on November 20, 1943 ; and

ties and being fully advised in the premises, finds 
that in this case the proposed use is to be 
located in a commercial district and in a building 
which was formerly occupied as a brass foundry; 
that there are several similar non-conforming 
uses located in the block in which the premises 
are located; that there is particular hardship in 
this case and that the applicant should be granted 
relief on condition that all permits necessary for 
the establishment of the proposed use shall be

S. Kenwood Av. 

Alderman Moss presented the following proposed 
ordinance: 

Whereas, As a result of the tremendous expan- 
sion of war industries in the City of Chicago, the 
City of Chicago has been declared the defense area 
and the territory south of 55th street in said City 
of Chicago has been declared to be a defense hous- 
ing area ; and 

Whereas, There is an acute shortage of housing 
facilities for defense workers and it is impossible 
to make available adequate materials and labor for 
the construction of new housing within the immedi- 
ate present to meet this emergency; and 

Whereas, It becomes necessary to attempt to 
convert existing old housing to a suitable condition 
for occupancy by defense workers and the labor 
and material requisite to such a conversion is 
available, which conversion can be made within a 
reasonable period of time so as to be available to 
meet the present emergency and such conversion is 
an urgent need of the Chicago defense area and 
particularly of that part thereof which is south

pared by a reputable architect designed to replace 
said fire damage and to make certain interior struc- 
tural changes necessitated by proposed installation 
of additional modern safety devices, reinforcements 
and replacements, which proposed structural 
changes do not comply with the provisions of the 
Building Code relating to the remodelling of exist- 
ing structures but which will comply with like 
requirements for new structures ; and

gineers have been consulted and have advised upon 
the making of said proposed changes, and have 
prepared bids based thereon; and 

Whereas, Negotiations have been undertaken

Federal funds to finance said proposed rehabilita- 
tion, all documents and approvals thereof being 
now in the possession of said Federal agency; and

ment in charge of War Housing have inspected the 
~ said property and have approved the plans and 
specifications for its rehabilitation and have desig- 
nated their readiness to enter into a lease thereof, 
when rehabilitation has been effected, for War 
housing purposes; and

vancement of Federal funds for the purpose that 
the contemplated conversion and rehabilitation be 
completed within six months; now, therefore,

ordinance, as amended, or within such exten- 
sion or extensions of time as may be fixed 
by the city coimcil, the Company shall have 
filed with the city clerk a certified copy of 
this ordinance as passed by the city council 
on the nineteenth (19th) day of June, A. D. 
1941, a certified copy of said amendatory or- 
dinance passed by the city council on the 
twenty-second (22nd) day of September, 
A. D. 1941, and a certified copy of said 
amendatory ordinance passed by the city 
council on the fifteenth (15th) day of April, 
A. D. 1942, and shall have attached to such 
certified copies its unconditional written ac- 
ceptance under its corporate seal of this 
ordinance, as amended, and of the exhibits 
attached to and made parts of this ordinance, 
as amended, and of all the terms, provisions, 
conditions, requirements, restrictions and 
limitations contained in this ordinance, as 
amended, together with a certificate by the 
president or vice-president of the Company, 
accompanied by the opinion of competent 
counsel, that the Company has acquired the 
properties of the existing companies in the 
manner provided in section 26 of this ordi- 
nance, as amended. 

The date of filing such acceptance shall be 
the effective date of this ordinance, as 
amended.;" 

and 

Whereas, The Illinois Commerce Commission on 
Jvme 22, 1943 denied the applications for rehearing 
filed by the City of Chicago and the Chicago Transit 
Company on June 2, 1943 in respect to the order 
entered by the Illinois Commerce Commission on 
May 3, 1943 denying the application of the Chi- 
cago Transit Company for approval of unification 
and authority to issue securities, docket number 
30937, and the City of Chicago and Chicago Transit 
Company, respectively, have appealed to the supe- 
rior court of Cook County, Illinois, from the said 
orders entered by the Illinois Commerce Commis- 
sion on May 3, 1943, and June 22, 1943, which 
appeals are now pending in said court ; and 

Whereas, On October 13, 1943 the Mayor of the 
City of Chicago proposed to the city council a plan 
of acquisition by the City of the properties of the 
companies constituting the Chicago Surface Lines 
and of Chicago Rapid Transit Company, and on 
November 17, 1943 the city council authorized and 
directed the committee on local transportation to 
undertake negotiations with the different interests 
involved, which negotiations through sub-commit- 
tees of the committee on local transportation are 
now in progress and obviously will require consid- 
erable time to determine their outcome; and 

Whereas, The judge of the district court of the 
United States in which the reorganization proceed- 
ings of the companies constituting the Chicago Sur- 
face Lines and of Chicago Rapid Transit Company 
are pending at the court hearing held January 28, 
1944, suggested that while these municipal owner- 
ship proceedings are pending, the ordinance passed 
June 19, 1941, as amended, should be kept alive, 
so that in the event municipal ownership is either 
defeated, abandoned or discarded, the plan of re- 
organization tentatively approved by the court in 



1942 might be so amended by its proponents that 
it could be approved by the court and submitted 
by Chicago Transit Company to the Illinois Com- 
merce Commission for its approval ; and 

Whereas, It now appears in view of said negotia- 
tions that further time is required within which 
the Chicago Transit Company might comply with 
the provisions of paragraph (c) of section 30 of 
said ordinance passed June 19, 1941, as amended; 
and 

Whereas, By an ordinance passed by the City 
Council of the City of Chicago on November 17, 
1943, as the same appears in the Journal of the 
Proceedings of the City Council at pages 864 and 
865, the time for the acceptance of said ordinance 
of June 19, 1941, as amended, was further extended 
to and including March 4, 1944 ; and 

Whereas, It is necessary and proper that the 
time within which the Chicago Transit Company 
shall accept said ordinance, as amended, be further 
extended to and including the third (3rd) day of 
May, 1944; now, therefore, 

Be it Ordained by the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

That the time within which the Chicago Transit 
Company shall file with the City Clerk a certified 
copy of said ordinance as passed by the City Council 
on the nineteenth (19th) day of June, A. D. 1941, 
a certified copy of said amendatory ordinance 
passed by the City Council on the twenty-second 
(22nd) day of September, A. D. 1941, and a certi- 
fied copy of said amendatory ordinance passed by 
the City Coimcil on the fifteenth (15th) day of 
April, A. D. 1942, together with its unconditional 
written acceptance under its corporate seal of the

"An ordinance providing for a comprehensive 
unified local transportation system to be used 
mainly for the transportation of persons in the 
City of Chicago and in the adjacent and suburban 
territory within the metropolitan area of the

Designation of "Shipyard Safety Days in Chicago".

Office op the Mayor 
City op Chicago 

Proclamation 

Whereas, the ultimate success of our armed forces 
in the present world conflict is largely dependent 
upon home-front production ; and 

Whereas, illness and accidents constitute a se- 
rious threat to the mounting tempo of our produc- 
tion schedule for all types of weapons of war; and 

Whereas, accidents in shipyards caused by care- 
lessness, fatigue and illness can be prevented, 
thereby boosting production of our men-of-war, 
troop carriers, landing barges, and other vessels 
necessary for the successful prosecution of the 
war; and 

Whereas, under the sponsorship of the Maritime 
Commission, a joint United States Navy and Mari- 
time Commission Shipyard Safety Conference is to 
be held on February 17-18, 1944, 

Now, therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby designate February 
17-18, 1944, as Shipyard Safety Days in Chicago, 
and in so doing I call upon all citizens and shipyard 
workers to cooperate in the reduction of prevent- 
able accidents to the end that essential war pro- 
duction may be materially increased through the 
saving of man hours among the members of Amer- 
ica's great labor army. 

Dated this tenth day of February, A. D. 1944. 

(Signed) Edward J. Kelly, 

Mayor.

February 15, 1944. 

To the Honorable, the Mayor and the City Council

Subject: Proposed amendment of Council Or-

Gentlemen — The Federal Public Housing Au- 
thority desires an amendment to the ordinance

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 



1509 



adopted February 9, 1944 by which the City was 
authorized to install water mains in the housing 
project south of 130th street and east of Langley 
avenue. 

The ordinance passed provided that the Federal 
Public Housing Authority should advance the cost 
of laying the water mains. This money advanced 
was to be returned to the Federal Housing Author- 
ity as they pay their water bills to the extent of 
fifty per cent of each bill. 

The representatives of the Housing Authority 
think that the language in the ordinance provided 
that they will not get their money back if they 
transferred their title to the housing project. The 
amendment suggested provides that they shall re- 
ceive the money advanced by it. 

The form of the amendment has been drawn 
and approved by the City Law Department and is 
submitted herewith for your consideration. 

Yours very truly,

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of

City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — In connection with the acquisition 
of right-of-way for the West Route of the Super- 
highway (Congress Street) it is necessary to ob- 
tain surveys of private property extending along 
the route of this superhighway between S. Racine 
Avenue and S. Ashland Avenue and between the 
north line of Van Buren Street and the south line 
of Congress Street, locating all buildings and cor- 
ners of the elevated railroad and marking all block 
corners. As these surveys must be produced and 
testified to in condemnation proceedings, it is de- 
sirable that they be obtained from registered land 
surveyors. 

The firm of Greeley-Howard-Norlin Company 
have proposed to do this work at the unit price of 
$325.00 per block or a total of $1300.00. 

It is therefore recommended that authority be 
granted to employ the firm of Greeley-Howard- 
Norlin Company to furnish the surveys as outlined 
above at a total cost of $1300.00. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) C. E. DeLeuw, 

Deputy for Commissioner of 
Subways and Superhighways.

Whereas, On February 7, 1944, the Board of

"Whereas, Joseph Sucherman, for Mabel H. 
Schmaltz, owner, filed, December 15, 1943, an ap- 
plication under the zoning ordinance to permit, 
in a commercial district, the establishment and 
operation of a sausage factory in an existing 
building which was formerly occupied as a pub- 
lic garage, on premises at 3838 W. Roosevelt 
road; and 

Whereas, the decision of the Commissioner of 
Buildings rendered December 2, 1943, reads: 
'Application not approved. Proposed improve- 
ment does not conform with requirements of 
zoning ordinance.' ; 
and 

Whereas, the proposed use is to be located in 
a commercial district and would violate the 
strict letter of the zoning ordinance: 
and 

Whereas, a public hearing was held on this 
application by the Board of Appeals at its regular 
meeting held on February 7, 1944, after due pub- 
lic notice by publication in the Chicago Journal 
of Commerce on December 24, 1943; and 

Whereas, the use district maps show that the 
premises are located in a commercial district; 

and 

Whereas, the Board of Appeals, having fully 
heard the testimony and arguments of the par- 
ties and being fully advised in the premises, finds 
that in this case the proposed use is to be located 
in a commercial district and in a building which 
was formerly occupied as a public garage; that 
because of the war effort it is difficult to procure 
suitable buildings for the proposed use; that 
there are practical difficulties and particular 
hardship in this case and that the applicant 
should be granted relief on condition that the 
proposed use shall be so conducted that the ap- 
propriate use of neighboring property will not 
be injured thereby; that all loading and unload- 
ing of materials and products shall be done with- 
in the building; that all trucking and hauling of

Whereas, The Almighty Father in His infinite

our beloved colleague, William J. Pieczynski, Alder-

* Whereas, The passing from our midst of William

JOURNAI^CITY COUNCII^CHICAGO 



March 13, 1944 



so ably led and inspired, the business world in 
which he held so honored a position, the countless 
friends he had made during his life of devoted 
service, and the members of his bereft family; and 
Whereas, The career of William Pieczynski was 
a source of inspiration to all who were privileged 
to know him, as well as to all those who believe in 
the democratic way of life, William Pieczynski 
having been born and reared in South Chicago, 
educated at Immaculate Conception Grammar 
School and Bowen High School, having started his 
business career in a humble capacity, and having 
by hard work, initiative and qualities of business 
leadership attained the position of vice-president 
and director of the Manhattan Lumber Company; 
and 

Whereas, The successful business career of Wil- 
liam Pieczynski was paralleled by a life of service 
in behalf of numerous charitable, philanthropic 
and social endeavors, and of years of energetic toil 
in behalf of his community, this record being re- 
warded by his election last year to the City Council 
as Alderman, a position which he graced with his 
customary leadership, zeal and wisdom; 

Now, Therefore, he it Resolved, That the surviv- 
ing members of the City Council of the City of 
Chicago, in special meeting assembled, do herewith 
express their profound grief on the passing of their 
colleague; and 

Be it Further Resolved, That Honorable Edward 
J. Kelly, Mayor, be and is hereby authorized to 
proclaim Wednesday, March 15, a day of official 
mourning by the City of Chicago for the loss of 
this beloved son, and that all departments of the 
City government, except those required for emer- 
gency business, be and they are hereby ordered 
closed until 1:00 o'clock P.M. on that day; 

Be it Further Resolved, That the members of 
the City Council herewith extend their condolences 
to the grief -stricken widow and children and other 
members of the family of their departed colleague, 
and also to his constituents in the Tenth Ward; 
and 

Be it Further Resolved, That the City Clerk of 
Chicago be instructed to enter this resolution in 
the records of the City as a permanent token of 
the love and esteem in which Alderman Pieczynski 
was held, and that a copy of this resolution, suit- 
ably engrossed, be presented to his bereaved 
widow. 

By unanimous consent, committee consideration was 
dispensed with. 

Alderman Rostenkowski moved to adopt the pro- 
posed resolution. 



The motion prevailed unanimously by a rising vote. 

Alderman Rostenkowski thereupon addressed the 
Council, paying tribute to the sterling character of 
the deceased alderman. He stated that he was with 
Alderman Pieczynski at the time he was stricken and 
that all things possible had been done in an effort 
to save his life, but to no avail. He added that the 
late Alderman was a credit to his colleagues, his 
constituents, and his many personal friends, and ex- 
tended his deepest sympathy to the members of the 
bereaved family. 

Addresses to the memory of the late Alderman 
were also made by Aldermen Sobota, Ropa, O'Hal- 
laren, Gillespie, Olin, Bohling, Orlikoski, Moss, Quinn, 
Waller, Cowhey, Lindell and Brandt, who paid tribute 
to their deceased colleague for his honesty, fairness, 
and devotion to duty, and expressed sympathy to his 
bereaved family. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, expressed a 
feeling of deep grief over the death of Alderman 
Pieczynski, and stated that Chicago has lost a fine, 
conscientious citizen and public official, who had 
represented a great constituency, and had represented 
it well. He added that the presence at the meeting of 
all the aldermen who were not confined to their homes 
by reason of illness was the best testimony as to the 
high esteem and affection in which they held their 
deceased colleague. 



Appointment of Committee on Funeral 
Arrangements. 

Honorable Edward J. Kelly, Mayor, thereupon an- 
nounced the appointment of the folWwing members 
of the Council as a special committee to arrange for 
the attendance of the City Council in a body at the 
funeral services for the late Alderman William J. 
Pieczynski: Alderman Joseph P. Rostenkowski, Chair-

over and the rescue of life on the war-stricken sea- 
ways and beaches of the world; and 

Whereas, In addition to these heroic activities, 
so vital to the defense of our country and the win- 
ning of the war, the United States Coast Guard is 
especially charged with the defense from sabotage 
and other enemy activity of our lakes and water- 
ways, the duties of saving life and property, main- 
taining lighthouses and buoys, opening ice-bound 
harbors and channels for ice-bound ships, enforc- 
ing marine law and otherwise safeguarding and 
aiding navigation; and 

Whereas, Navigation on the Great Lakes and 
Mississippi River system, so aided and protected 
by the valor of our Coast Guardsmen, — often at 
the cost of life, has played an important part in 
our city's rise to eminence as the transportation 
center of the mid-Continent and endeared the 
Coast Guard and its brave personnel to every Chi- 
cagoan ; 

Now, Therefore, Be it Resolved, That the City 
Council of the City of Chicago, in response to the 
urgent need of our Coast Guard to increase its 
present complement of Spars, hereby authorizes 
His Honor, Mayor Edward J. Kelly, to set aside 
the period of March 20 to April 10, inclusive, as 
"Chicago's Own Spar Drive"; authorizes him to 
call upon Chicago's wives and daughters to aid 
their country by joining the Spars, and to call 
upon all other citizens to do all in their power to 
help assure the drive's success. 

By unanimous consent committee consideration was 
dispensed with. 

Alderman Moss moved to adopt the proposed reso- 
lution. Seconded by Alderman Wagner.

the drive to secure additional enlistments in this 
branch of the service.

Designation of "Greek Day in Chicago". 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

Proclamation 

Whereas, the people of the great nation of Greece 
have from ancient times made distinct and out- 
standing contributions to the advancement of civ- 
ilization in the arts, the sciences, in philosophy and 
in all branches of learning; and 

Whereas, the citizens in Chicago of Greek birth 
and ancestry have for many years contributed to 
the welfare and progress of our entire community; 
and 

Whereas, Saturday, March 25, will be celebrated 
throughout the civilized world as the day of inde- 
pendence of the Greek nation; and 

Whereas, the Chicagoans of Greek extraction 
plan a giant mass meeting to be held at the Ash- 
land Boulevard Auditorium Sunday evening, March 
26, 1944, in order properly to observe the happy 
occasion of Greek independence and at the same 
time to extend a prayer for the early victory of 
the United Nations and the liberation of Greece, 
and to protest the atrocities committed by the Axis 
conquerors upon the long-suffering and heroic 
people of Greece; 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of

March 25, 1944, as Greek Day in Chicago, and in 
so doing I urge the citizens of Chicago of Greek

fairs of the civilized world.

Designation of "Cancer Control Month in Chicago". 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

Proclamation 

Whereas, each April a special campaign con- 
ducted by the Women's Field Army of the Ameri- 
can Society for the Control of Cancer calls 
attention to the fact that cancer is the second 
highest cause of death in the United States; and 

Whereas, if correctly diagnosed and treated in 
time, from one-half to two-thirds of the 163,000 
lives lost annually because of cancer could be 
saved; and 

Whereas, the 32,017 lives lost on our country's 
battle-fronts up to December 23, 1943, constitute 
less than one-fifth of the deaths caused by cancer 
on the homefront in a single year; and 

Whereas, "Treated in Time, Cancer Can Be 
Cured" is the slogan under which the Women's 
Field Army will conduct a campaign to teach our 
citizens how to recognize the early signs of can- 
cer to the end that they shall realize the necessity 
of consulting their physicians while cure is still 
possible; and 

Whereas, as a practical application of the educa- 
tional program of the Women's Field Army in Illi- 
nois the Cancer Prevention Clinic for Women 
which opened in May, 1943, is the principal project 
and has proved so effective that it will be studied 
as a pattern for a similar national project; 



Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, in furtherance of this great 
iiumanitarian effort, do hereby designate the month 
of April as Cancer Control Month in Chicago, 
and in so doing I urge all channels of information 
— the press, the radio, the magazines, as well as 
the various religious, social, fraternal, labor and 
industrial organizations — to lend their support 
as a matter of public welfare to the Women's 
Field Army of the American Society for the Con- 
trol of Cancer, 48 West Division Street, Chicago. 

Dated this fourteenth day of March, A. D., 1944.

Designation of "Chicago Public Library Week". 

Office of the Mayor 
City of Chicago 

Proclamation 

Whereas, the fullest utilization of the resources 
of all agencies is necessary to the successful con- 
duct of the community war effort; and 

Whereas, the Chicago Public Library and its 
fifty-nine branches and sub-branches have come to 
be known in the minds of the citizens of Chicago 
as sources of all phases of information pertaining 
to the war ; and 

Whereas, through their wide distribution of 
thousands of government pamphlets, books and 
other publications, the Chicago Public Library and 
its branches have served as valuable agencies for 
the dissemination of vitally important war infor- 
mation; and 

Whereas, the service flag of the Chicago Public 
Library containing ninety-five stars is another 
manifestation of the Library's participation in the 
war effort; and 

Whereas, notwithstanding the many and varied 
war activities in which it is engaged, the Chicago 
Public Library has steadfastly maintained its mani- 
fold peace-time services ; 

Now, Therefore, I, Edward J. Kelly, Mayor of 
the City of Chicago, do hereby designate the pe- 
riod May 8-14, 1944, as Chicago Public Library 
Week, and in so doing I urge that our citizens 
make fullest use of the library and its many 
branches in order that they may become more 
fully informed as to their country's war effort 
and thereby become better qualified to participate 
in the war program.

suit of happiness of the people of the free coun- 
tries of the Western Hemisphere depend in a large 
measure upon their unity in working toward a

Whereas, the peoples of the American Repub-

City of Chicago 
Department of Law 

February 17, 1944. 

To the Honorable, The City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Re: Site of Ft. Dearborn Bldg. Corp. v. City of 
Chicago, Circuit Court No. 35-C-2382. 

Gentlemen — On December 14, 1943, we wrote 
you advising that the above case arose out of the 
North Michigan avenue improvement. The plaintiff, 
in his complaint in equity on behalf of himself 
and all other assessees, asked to recover from the 
city's corporate fund an alleged surplus transferred 
from the special assessment fund created for the 
improvement. The Circuit Court entered a decree 
which would compel the payment of $337,770.32, 
plus simple interest at 5% per annum from August 
22, 1930, by the city out of the corporate fund to 
the special assessment fund for distribution pro 
rata among the assessees. 

This office took the case up to the Appellate 
Court on appeal and that court (App. Court No. 
42123) upheld the city's contention that the city 
was entitled to share in the surplus in proportion 
to the public benefit payments made by it and the 
court directed the Circuit Court to amend its de- 
cree to enable the city to retain 56.9937% or 
$194,072.27 of said fund and to order the city to 
pay over to the special assessment fund for pro 
rata distribution among the assessees 43.0063% or 
$146,443.03. 

Petitions for review of the Appellate Court's de- 
cision were filed by both parties in the Supreme 
Court (Supreme Court Nos. 27305 and 27309) and 
both petitions were denied so that the Appellate 
Court decision became final and controlling. 

In compliance with the mandate of the Appellate 
Court Judge Harry M. Fisher entered the follow- 
ing orders : 

December 8, 1943 : 

1. Mandate of Appellate Court filed. 

2. Order amending decree in accordance with 
mandate, as follows: 

(a) That City of Chicago is entitled to share 
in rebate to extent of 56.9937% of 
$337,770.32, amounting to $194,072.27. 

(b) That 43.0063%, amounting to $146,- 
443.03, plus 5% per annum simple inter- 
est from August 22, 1930, to date of pay- 
ment, be restored by the City of Chi- 
cago to special fund heretofore constitut- 
ing surplus fund. 

(c) That City of Chicago cause a rebate to 
be declared and paid, pursuant to statute, 
upon each block, tract or parcel of land 
assessed, of its pro rata proportion of 
said surplus and interest thereon, except 
such amounts as will be allowed by the 
court for plaintiff's attorneys' fees. 

December 14, 1943 : 

3. Allowance of the following sums to Site of 
Ft. Dearborn Bldg. Corp. (Taylor, Miller, 
Busch & Boyden, attorneys) for attorneys' 
fees and expenses to be disbursed out of the 
assessees' share of the fund: 

Expense of litigation $ 1,198.54 

Attorneys' fees 48,932.68 

The decree according to the mandate of the 
Appellate Court calls for restoration of trust fund 
on behalf of assessees in the sum of $146,443.03, 
plus interest at the rate of 5% per annum from 



August 22, 1930, to date fund is restored and made 
available for distribution. 

Very truly yours,

Assistant Corporation Counsel.

The authority to issue the original warrants 
above described hereby is reaffirmed in all respects. 

Section 2. The new warrants hereby authorized 
to be issued and sold shall be of a like principal 
amount, for the same purpose and in anticipation 
of the same taxes as the original warrants were 
issued, and shall be subject to all the provisions in 
Sections 15-6 and 15-7 of the Revised Cities and 
Villages Act, effective January 1, 1942. The new 
warrants may have any date subsequent to the 
date of the original tax anticipation warrants, shall 
be of the denomination of $1000, or multiples there- 
of, shall bear interest not to exceed three per cent 
per annum from the date thereof until paid and 
shall be sold by the City Comptroller at not less 
than the par value thereof and accrued interest 
from the date thereof. 

Section 3. Simultaneously with the delivery of 
and receipt of payment for any of the new tax 
anticipation warrants, a like principal amount of 
the original warrants that were issued against the 
same tax that is anticipated by the new warrants, 
together with so much of the interest accrued there- 
on as the proceeds of the sale of the new tax antici- 
pation warrants will permit, shall be paid and can- 
celed. 

The proceeds of the sale of the new tax anticipa- 
tion warrants shall be paid to the City Treasurer to 
restore the funds of the City of Chicago invested 
in the original tax anticipation warrants. Before 
cancellation of the principal amount of any original 
warrant, the City Treasurer shall separately en- 
dorse thereon the amount paid and the date of pay- 
ment in the following order: (1) the principal 
amount so paid and (2) the amount of accrued in- 
terest paid. The City Treasurer shall also endorse 
upon the original tax anticipation warrants the 
amount of interest accrued thereon and unpaid, and 
the same shall not be paid until all principal and 
interest upon the new warrants shall be fully paid 
or until money has been set aside for payment 
thereof, if the new warrants are not presented for 
payment after they are called for redemption. 

Section 4. This ordinance shall be in force from 
and after its passage and approval.

The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, The Congress of the United States, 
through the provisions of an Act known as H. R. 
2798, made available $50,000,000.00 to be ex- 
pended by the Commissioner of Public Roads of 
the United States in co-operation with State High- 
way Departments of the various states for investi- 
gations, surveys, plans, specifications and estimates 
for postwar highway improvements ; and 

Whereas, General Administrative Memorandum 
No. 238 issued "by the Public Works Administra- 
tion of the Federal Works Agency indicates that 
the State of Illinois' share of this allotment would 
be $2,018,863.00 provided that this amount or 
more of Federal funds apportioned to the State 
prior to January 1, 1942, remains unobligated for 
the construction or reconstruction of Federal Aid 
Roads; and 

Whereas, General Administrative Memorandum 
No. 238 issued by the Public Roads Administration, 
Federal Works Agency, indicates that State High- 
way Departments may utilize the services of well- 
qualified County, State, or other governmental 
agencies acting under its direction for surveys and 
preparation of plans, specifications or estimates 
for any item included in the program of work 
provided for; and 

Whereas, The City of Chicago maintains a well- 
qualified and efficient force of engineers in con- 
nection with its highway, bridge and viaduct, 
grade separation, and subway construction pro- 
grams, and these organizations have been en- 
gaged in postwar planning and are capable of 
extending their activities if more funds are made 
available ; therefore, be it 

Resolved, That the City Council hereby petitions 
the Director of the Department of Public Works 
and Buildings and the Chief Highway Engineer of 
the Division of Highways to allot to the City of 
Chicago Federal funds which have been made 
available to the State of Illinois Highway Depart- 
ment, to be used in connection with the preparation

sioner of PubUc Roads, Washington, D. C, the Hon- 
orable Dwight P. Green, Governor of the State of 
Illinois, the Director of Public Works and Build- 
ings, State of Illinois, the Chief Engineer of the

U. S. Congress and General Assembly of Illinois 
Requested to Declare Illinois and Michigan Canal 
Unnavigable Westward from S. Ashland A v. 

The Committee on Finance submitted a report rec- 
ommending that a proposed resolution submitted 
therewith be adopted, to petition the Congress of the 
United States and the General Assembly of Illinois 
to declare the Illinois and Michigan Canal unnavigable 
from the east line of S. Ashland avenue to the west- 
ern limits of Cook County. 

No request was made by any two aldermen present 
to defer final action on said committee report. 

Alderman Bowler moved to adopt the proposed 
resolution. 

The motion prevailed by yeas and nays as follows: 
Yeas — Aldermen Budinger, Harvey, DePriest, Cohen, 
Moss, Bohling, Olin, Lindell, Connelly, Hartnett, 
Hogan, Wagner, Kovarik, Sheridan, Murphy, O'Hal- 
laren, Duffy, Pistilli, Janousek, Kacena, Fischman, 
Bowler, Sobota, Sain, Kells, Gillespie, Upton, Rosten- 
kowski, Brandt, Porten, Orlikoski, Walsh, Lancaster, 
Cullerton, Brody, Gurman, Cowhey, Waller, Merry- 
man, Young, Hil-burn, Quirk, Keenan and Quinn — 44. 

■ Nays — ^None. 
The following is said resolution as adopted: 

Whereas, The Illinois and Michigan Canal, as 
originally constructed through the City of Chicago 
and the County of Cook, Illinois, has been in 
disuse for a number of decades, has no current 
and the bottom of the channel is filled with stag- 
nant water and constitutes a nuisance; and 

Whereas, The Sanitary and Ship Canal built 
by The Sanitary District of Chicago is the Lake 
Michigan end of the Lakes-to-Gulf Deep Water Way 
and is capable of handling the traffic for this 
route, parallels the Illinois and Michigan Canal, 
and is but a few hundred feet from it; and 

Whereas, The existence of the Illinois and Mich- 
igan Canal adds to the difficulty of carrying out a 
proper urban development in that portion of the 
City of Chicago and Cook County, making it neces- 
sary for the local governmental bodies in providing 
for highway traffic and for transportation com- 
panies to construct and maintain unnecessary 
bridges and other structures; therefore Be It 

Resolved, That it is the sense of the City Council 
that in the interest of a more orderly and economic 
development of this community and the abate- 
ment of a nuisance the Illinois and Michigan Canal 
should be declared an unnavigable stream; and 
Be It Further 

Resolved, That the City Council of the City of 
Chicago does hereby petition the Congress of the 
United States of America and the General Assem- 
bly of the State of Illinois to pass the necessary 
legislation declaring the Illinois and Michigan 
Canal as unnavigable between the east line of 
S. Ashland Avenue in the City of Chicago and the 
boundary line between Cook County and Will 
County ; and Be It Further 

Resolved, That the City Clerk be and he is 
hereby directed to forward copies of this resolu- 
tion to Hon. Scott W. Lucas and Hon. Wayland C. 
Brooks, U. S. Senators from Illinois, and to the 
members of the House of Representatives repre-

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



March 16, 1944 



The following is the communication attached to the 
foregoing order: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 



March 1, 1944. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen— On February 15, 1939 (JCP page 
8020) the City Council authorized the Commis- 
sioner of Subways and Traction to make arrange- 
ments and agreements for service, materials and 
supplies with various concerns and individuals in- 
cluding the following: — 

Robert W. Hunt Company, for testing service 
on structural steel, cast iron pipe, miscellaneous 
castings, miscellaneous metals, electrical conduit 
and fittings; 

Walter H. Flood & Company, for testing serv- 
ices on cement, concrete and reinforcing steel; 

Peter Fish Studios, covering photographic re- 
quirements. 

This authority has been continued and extended 
during 1940, 1941, 1942 and 1943 by action of 
the City Council on April 3, 1940 (JCP page 2234),

(JCP page 6582), and March 18, 1943 (JCP page 
8448). The character of the services rendered is 
of a professional nature not susceptible of com- 
petitive bidding. The need will continue for such 
services during the year 1944 on Subways and 
Superhighways work. 

It is requested, therefore, that authority be 
granted the Commissioner of Subways and Super- 
highways to continue to make arrangements and 
agreements for service, materials and supplies m 
1944 as may be needed, relating to the activities 
of the Department of Subways and Superhighways. 
It is understood in the arrangement for the furnish- 
ing of service with all firms and individuals that 
such arrangements can be cancelled at any time 
upon notice by the Commissioner. 

Respectfully submitted, 

V. E. GUNLOCK, 

Deputy for Commissioner of

The following is the communication attached to the 
foregoing order: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

March 6, 1944. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago : 

Gentlemen — On December 20, 1940 the City 
Council authorized (C. J., p. 3662) the Commis- 
sioner to award a contract to the Chicago Title and 
Trust Company for furnishing opinions of title and 
information for necesssary parties to condemnation 
proceedings and later date opinions following judg- 
ments in condemnation in connection with the acqui- 
sition of rights-of-way for the West Superhighway 
Route. 

Opinions of title were secured for 88 parcels and 
brought down to January, 1941. No further action 
was taken on the acquisition of this right-of-way 
because of the absence of certain approvals that 
were necessary. Now that we have the necessary 
approval to proceed with the acquisition of this 
right-of-way, it will be necessary to have these 
opinions of title brought down to date. Judge Rig- 
heimer, representing this department, has made 
arrangements with the Chicago Title and Trust 
Company to bring these opinions of title down to 
the present date for a charge of $12.00 per title. 

I therefore recommend that your committee rec- 
ommend to the City Council the approval of this 
arrangement with the Chicago Title and Trust Com- 
pany and that the Commissioner of Subways and 
Superhighways be empowered to enter into a con- 
tract with the Chicago Title & Trust Company for 
bringing down to date certain opinions of title at 
the agreed price, in connection with the acquisi- 
tion of right-of-way for the West Route of the 
Comprehensive System of Superhighways. 
Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) • V. E. Gunlock, 

Deputy for Commissioner of 
Subways and Superhighways.

this tax, and the City ComproUer and the City 
Treasurer are authorized and directed to pass for 
payment vouchers for same when approved by the 
Commissoner of Subways and Superhighways. 



The following is the communication attached to the 
foregoing order: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

March 11, 1944. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — Order No. S-1 of contract E-5, with 
the Garden City Plating & Manufacturing Com- 
pany, Inc., contractor, provided for furnishing the 
hghting fixtures installed in the State Street Sub- 
way by Divane Bros., contractor for Order S-3 of 
Contract E-5. The City Council authorized the 
award of this contract for furnishing lighting fix- 
tures on May 13, 1942 (See C.J., p. 6966). On July 
8, 1942 (See C.J., p. 7218), the City Council ap- 
proved a supplemental agreement with the con- 
tractor for wiring the fixtures. The original con- 
tract cost, based on quantities estimated by the 
City and unit prices submitted in the contractor's 
proposal, and including the supplemental agree- 
ment, amounted to $53,221.50. This amount is ex- 
clusive of the Retailer's Occupation Tax, which the 
City will be obligated to pay if exemption cannot be 
obtained. 

The contract is now completed and the final cost 
amounts to $53,083.24, or $135.26 less than the 
original estimate. The final cost of the contract has 
been approved by the Project Engineer, P.W.A., as 
indicated on the attached memorandum. "This 



amount includes the sum of $257.97 for fixture 
parts purchased for fixtures installed in the 
cashiers' booths (transportation equipment), and 
is therefore ineligible for grant participation. We 
have paid a total of $46,660.46 on this contract, 
leaving a balance unpaid of $6,425.78. 

It is recommended, therefore, inasmuch as the 
contract is satisfactorily completed, that you rec- 
ommend to the City Council that the Commissioner 
of Subways and Superhighways be authorized to 
make a final payment of $6,425.78 to the Garden 
City Plating & Manufacturing Company, Inc., for 
lighting fixtures furnished under Order No. S-1 
of Contract E-5 of the State Street Subway. It is 
also recommended that the Commissioner be au- 
thorized to pay the Retailers Occupation Tax on 
these lighting fixtures if the City is unable to 
obtain exemption of this tax. 

Respectively submitted, 

(Signed) V. E. Gunlock^ 

Deputy for Commissioner of 
Subways and Superhighways.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



March 16, 1944 



The following is the communication attached to the 
foregoing order: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

March 8, 1944. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — This is to certify that all work 
on contracts F-1, F-2 and F-3, Combined, of the 
State Street Subway is completed, with the ex- 
ception of the replacement of a few pieces of de- 
fective marble. The contractor is now making 
satisfactory progress in correcting the defective 
work and should be finished by March 15th. Final 
inspection of the contract was made on September 
21, 1943, October 6, 1943, and October 13, 1943, 
by Messrs. Turpin, Seymour, Barnett and Fleming, 
representing the P.W.A., Messrs, DeLeuw, Gun- 
lock and Wakefield, representing the City and 
Mr. A. F. O'Neil, representing the Contractor. 

The contract consisted of various items of sta- 
tion finish work, as well as the installation of mis- 
cellaneous materials and equipment, and was 
awarded to the W. E. O'Neil Construction Company 
on September 22, 1941 (See C.J., p. 5613). The 
original cost of the contract amounted to $974,- 
278.50, based on quantities estimated by this de- 
partment and the unit prices bid by the contractor. 
Although we have not completed the final cost of 
his contract to the City, it is estimated to be in 
excess of $907,400.00. We have paid the contractor 
a total of $858,318.93, leaving a balance unpaid 
in excess of $49,000.00. We have now been re- 
quested to release $40,000.00 of this amount, there- 
by reducing the reserve to an amount in excess of 
$9,000.00. As this paymnt, if approved, will per- 
mit the contractor to make final payment to those 
subcontractors who have not been previously paid 
in full, we consider this reserve would be ample 
protection for the City. Attached herewith is a 
photostat copy of letter from the Project Engineer, 
P.W.A., approving the payment of $49,000.00 of 
the reserve. 

It is recommended, therefore, that you recom- 
mend to the City Council that the Commissioner 
of Subways and Superhighways be authorized to 
pay $40,000.00 of the reserve to the W. E. O'Neil 
Construction Company for the work completed on 
Contracts F-1, F-2 and F-3, combined, of the State 
Street Subway. This payment will be contingent 
upon the contractor's 

1. Furnishing consent of its surety. 

2. Furnishing all maintenance bonds. 

3. Replacing defective marble. 

4. Making final payments to subcontractors as 
directed by the City. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) V. E. Gunlock, 

Deputy for Commissioner of 
Subways and Superhighways.

The following is the report attached to the fore- 
going order: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

March 7, 1944. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — In order that your Committee and 
the City Council may be fully advised on the track 
and contact rail materials purchased from various 
suppliers under Contract T-2 for the State Street 
Subway, I wish to report as follows : 

On September 22, 1941 (See C. J., p. 5620), the 
City Council authorized the award of contracts to 
those suppliers who submitted formal bids for fur- 
nishing track and contact rail materials under 
Order Nos. S-6, S-7, S-10, S-11, S-12 and S-13 of 
Contract T-2. As formal bids had not been re- 
ceived for Order Nos. S-1, S-2, S-3, S-4, S-5, S-8, 
S-9 and S-14 of Contract T-2, the City Council also 
authorized the Commissioner of Subways and 
Superhighways to negotiate for prices of materials 
to be furnished under these items. 

Subsequently, you were advised of the result of 
these negotiations and the City Council authorized 
entering into contracts with various suppliers as 
recommended by the Commissioner of Subways 
and Superhighways. These contracts are now com- 
pleted and final payment has been made to the 
suppliers. The City Council has previously author- 
ized final payment on all of the formal contracts 
under Contract T-2. The following tabulation 
shows the amount authorized by the City Council 
for each of the negotiated contracts, based on esti- 
mated quantities, as well as the final cost as deter- 
mined from the quantities of materials actually 
delivered :

City of Chicago 
Department of Subways and Superhighways 

February 21, 1944. 

To the Honorable, the Chairman and Members of 
the Committee on Finance of the City Council, 
City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen — On December 10, 1943, I trans- 
mitted a letter to your committee concerning Con- 
tract T-5, Order No. 2, State Street Subway, in 
which I recommended that you recommend the 
final contract value of $64,522.08 and authorize the 
Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways to 
pay to the Schick-Johnson Company the unpaid 
balance of $2,684.89 as a final payment on this 
contract. 

The City Council authorized the issuance of the 
final voucher to the Schick-Johnson Company, but 
the amount was inadvertently set forth as 
$64,522.08, which represented the total contract 
value, instead of $2,684.89 which represented the 
unpaid balance. 

I have issued the final voucher to the Schick- 
Johnson Company in the amount of $2,684.89 which 
represents the correct amount. It is therefore 
recommended that your committee recommend to 
the City Council that this action be ratified. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) Philip Harrington, 

Commissioner of 
Subways and Superhighways.

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES

The American Legion 
Department of Illinois 

March 9, 1944. 
Chairman of the Finance Committee 
City Council 
City Hall 
Chicago, Illinois 
Att: Mr. Cenfield 

My Dear Mr. Cenfield — ^In compliance with the 
verbal promise I made to you and the Alderman 
this morning, I desire to submit the following 
comment on the Legion report covering our poppy 
sale for last year as submitted to your committee 
through the Veterans' Poppy Day Association. 

You indicated that you were particularly inter- 
ested in having a report showing how the Depart- 
ment of Illinois, The American Legion, budgets or 
uses the $39,290.64 paid to it by the Poppy Day 
Association as its share of the poppy funds, this 
being entirely separate from the item of $56,883.10 
paid to the individual posts. 

For your information, there is attached hereto a 
copy of our department budget, which is the money 
appropriated to this office by our finance commit- 
tee at the annual convention. 

Section n of the report covers the budget for 
the service department, which embraces the office 
here at 205 West Wacker drive, the claims office of 
The American Legion at Hines, and the Child Wel- 
fare office, which was moved to Chicago from 
Bloomington by mandate of last year's convention. 
This gives us a total of $42,579.40 for the Chicago 
and the Hines office of The American Legion, which 
handles probably eighty per cent of all of the 
service work carried on by The American Legion 
in the state of Illinois. 

In addition to the above budget, there was 
appropriated by the last convention a sum of 
$10,000 to the service department from our general 
fund to take care of any emergency that should 
arise during this war year. It has been necessary, 
since the time of the last convention, to draw from 
this special fund, to expand our service because of 
the added problem resulting from World War II 
veterans. 

We believe that perhaps $3000 or $4000 will be 
used out of this fund between now and the time 
of our next convention. 

May I suggest to you that the Legion service de- 
partment is the only veteran office in the down- 
town area of Chicago where gratis service and 
relief are extended to veterans and their dependents 
without regard to the question of membership in 
the organization. This office has been in existence 
since 1919 and during the intervening years the 
department of Illinois has expended from its de- 
partment funds over $100,000 over and above the 
total amount of money received by the department 
from all poppy sales. 

Yours very truly, 
(Signed) L. R. Benston, 

Department Service Officer.

WwFRFAS The United States District Engineer 
set MarSi 6, 1944 as the date for public hearing on 
Se proposal to extend the Calumet-Sag navigation 
project to Clark Street, Gary, Indiana; and 

Whereas, Because of the great importance of 
avoiding any possible additional pollution hazard 
to the wate/sSpply of the City of Chicago and to 
the bathing beaches which serve large metropohtan 
areas, serious consideration is now bemg given to 
Modifying the one-lock plan and providing two 
SSs oSf of which would be in the Calumet river 
akeward of its junction with the Grand Calumet 
Sver Ind the other in the Grand Calumet river 
immediately west of its junction with the Indiana 
Harbor Canal; and 

Whereas, The City Council of the City of Chi- 
cago recognizes that the maintenance of the public 
health is a prime requisite of the people and the 
most urgent responsibility of all public officials, 
and 

Whereas, The said City Council is vitally con- 
cerned with the complete development -of the Calu- 
met-Sag system of waterways and desires to record 
itself as strongly in favor of the proposal to extend 
the scope and navigability of the Grand Calumet 
river in the interest of the further development 
of commerce and industry, now therefore be it 

Resolved, That we, the City Council of the City 
of Chicago, strongly urge the United States Dis- 
trict Engineer to adopt and recommend a plan tor 
the Calumet system of waterways that will: 

(a) effectively and adequately safeguard and 
protect the health of several million people in 
Chicago and the neighboring cities in Indiana, 

(b) for the purpose of obtaining that objective 
as well as promoting and increasing water-borne 
commerce, and in addition conserve the funds of 
the United States, that two locks be placed in 
the waterway system, one of which be con- 
structed in the Calumet river lakeward from 
the junction of the Grand Calumet and Little 
Calumet rivers, and the other in the Indiana 



Harbor ship canal lakeward from the junction 
of the canal with the Grand Calumet river, 

(c) that these two locks be placed as close 
to Lake Michigan as the requirements of Great 
Lakes shipping and inland waterway barge traf- 
fic will permit; 
and be it further 

Resolved, That the City Council solicit the 
cooperation of navigation interests, industrialists, 
officials of neighboring cities and other authorities 
in obtaining a waterway development which will 
prevent pollution of the south end of Lake Mich- 
igan. 



HOUSING. 



Proposed 

Recommendations Relative to Proposed Estab- 
lishment of Housing Board of Inspection. 

The Committee on Housing submitted the following 
report, which was, on motion of Alderman Lindell, 
deferred and ordered published: 

Chicago, March 1, 1944. 
To the President and Members of the City Council: 
Your Committee on Housing, having under con- 
sideration a proposed ordinance (referred Novem- 
ber 17, 1943, page 856) for estabUshment of a 
housing board of inspection to enforce minimum 
housing standards in the City of Chicago, begs 
leave to report and recommend that the recom- 
mendations contained in the attached report pre- 
pared by a subcommittee of your Committee which 
is making a study of this matter, be concurred in. 

This recommendation was concurred in by twelve 
members of the committee, -with one dissenting 
vote. 

Respectfully submitted.

A. G. Lindell, 

Chairman. 



The following is the subcommittee report submitted 
with the foregoing committee report: 

Chicago, March 1, 1944. 

Alderman Arthur G. Lindell, Chairman, and Mem- 
bers of the Committee on Housing: 
Gentlemen— This subcommittee, having had re- 
ferred to it by you for consideration a proposed 
revised ordinance to establish a housing board of 
inspection to enforce minimum housing standards 
in the City of Chicago, begs leave to report that it 
has conducted hearings thereon at which numerous 
individuals and organizations appeared and testi- 
fied in support and opposition thereto. 

Your subcommittee agrees in principal with the 
main object of the proposed ordinance, but not 
with the manner of accomplishing the results 
sought. Your subcommittee believes that a step in 
the direction of accomplishing the desired results 
sought has been taken in the provision made in the 
Annual Appropriation Ordinance of the City of 
Chicago for the year 1944 of a Coordinator of 
Permits and Inspections. 

Your subcommittee recommends that the duties 
of said coordinator shall include the following: 
(a) Development of a system of coordination 
whereby inspections of a particular unit or units 
would be made by the various housing inspec- 
tional services of the city and complaints merged 



March 16, 1944

into one, with one suit or other legal action being 
instituted to cover all complaints on the particu- 
lar unit or units, in order to avoid multiplicity 
of suits. 

(b) Work looking to development of a system 
of coordinating and merging into one annual 
warrant, where possible, of the charges for va- 
rious inspectional services, so that the owner of 
such unit or units would receive one warrant for 
collection covering all annual inspection fees or 
other fees, where possible. 

Your subcommittee feels that such coordination 
will not suffice unless the legal actions are prop- 
erly prepared so as to eliminate as far as possible, 
the dismissal of suits because of improper plead- 
ings, and, further, that adequate time and con- 
sideration should be given each case by the court 
so that said cases may be disposed of as promptly 
as possible and without the necessity of numerous 
continuances, and in this connection, we recom- 
mend: 

(1) That the Corporation Counsel of the City 
of Chicago assign to said coordinator an assist- 
ant corporation counsel for the purpose of pre- 
paring and presenting legal actions ; 

(2) That the Chief Justice of the Municipal 
Court of Chicago be urged to set up a specialized 
branch of said court for the purpose of acting 
upon said legal actions. 

Your subcommittee feels that the purposes 
sought by the proposed ordinance involves the 
question of better coordination and enforcement, 
and believes that the experience to be gained in 
the above-suggested program will assist in the 
solution of the problem. 

Your subcommittee further recommends that it 
retam jurisdiction of the proposed revised ordi- 
nance now before it. 

Respectfully submitted, 
(Signed) Roy E. Olin, 

Chairman.
